I'm A Celebrity Fans Call For Rebekah Vardy To Be Axed For 'Homophobic' Tweets
Fans have unearthed 'homophobic' tweets allegedly sent by WAG and I'm A Celebrity star Rebekah Vardy, and it is safe to say that plenty of viewers are fuming. Some have even called for her to be "axed" from the jungle.
The 'discovery' comes after Jack Maynard was booted from the camp on Tuesday night, allegedly down to several 'racist' and 'homophobic' tweets posted to the social media sharing site while he was a teen.
One tweet, which fans claim was posted by Rebekah, reads: ""@MrHarryWood: @xelahopkinds1984 @Little_Miss_Foz what about the 3rd 'bird' the gay walker?" @Jay_Walker25 ginger gay w*nker ha ha PMSL."
Another read: "Whatsap.......GAY.....sort it out grrrrrr [sic]."
By the looks of a screenshot of the tweet doing the rounds on social media, the tweets were first uploaded back in September 2013 and Feburary 2013, nearly four years ago.
Plenty of fans are livid after the tweets were 'unearthed', and took to social media to vent.
"Let's hope your kids don't grow up to be "Ginger gay wankers" @RebekahVardy that's certainly no way for a charity worker to speak hope there's no ginger gays in need of your charitable nature," slammed one fan.

A second chimed in: "Seeing Rebekah Vardy's tweet calling someone a 'ginger gay wanker' n I'm thinking, sure lyl she should be gone aswell? Not fair that Jack has been axed when there's others that've done the same? Jack was only 16, Rebekah was 31 #ImACeleb [sic]."
"Why do people think it's okay to use the word 'gay' to label something negative? So many homophobes around isn't there.. how sad," questioned another Twitter user about these so-called tweets.
While a fourth exclaimed: "If Rebekah Vardy doesn't get axed by ITV on I'm A Celeb for her homophobic remarks Also I will make a petition to get her gone. Absolute joke."
Jay Walker has now defended Rebekah's tweet, writing: "I hate to disappoint people but this tweet was to me & we were all just repeating names a guy had called us."
"Nothing homophobic about it & actually mocking someone who had been. Rebekah is the least homophobic or malicious person I know so afraid your all very much mistaken! Good luck Mrs Vardy [sic]."
